Agricultural Chemical Cleanup Program (ACCP)

The Agricultural Chemical Cleanup Program (ACCP) has two separate functions. First, the program identifies and helps manage the clean up of releases of pesticide and fertilizer spills to prevent these products from reaching the groundwater. Once a site has been identified as needing a clean up, the ACCP provides reimbursement for eligible costs incurred by the responsible person.

Since 1994, when the ACCP was initiated, we have begun over 509 facility-related clean ups and closed out over 287 facility-related cleanup cases. In addition, we also responded to and closed out over 97% (848) of the 874 reported spills of agrichemicals. Over the years we have also received over 1120 reimbursement applications and have paid out nearly $38 million in reimbursements.
